It seems even I can be a liar at times.

[Henry's voice is soft as he joins Ryou at the edge of the cliff, peering down at the water instead of looking over at him. His face is solemn, even sad, and he seems to have left the crown behind this time.]

I told you that I would always find a way to make time for you... and yet, when you came to find me, when you needed that time, I didn't.

[Nevermind that Henry was suffering the feeling of a part of him being cut out... who knew how much Ryou had suffered, too?

He ignores the question, or at least doesn't address it.]


I'm sorry, Ryou... forgive me.
helpusduelist: (We're always trying harder not to die)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
[His eyes drift down to Ryou's hand, a smile crossing his face a little as his own closes over it. After a moment, he lets go, picking up Ryou and taking his seat, resting the boy in his lap.]

You look tired. [A hand moves up to brush aside his hair a little.] What was it that was bothering you?
helpusduelist: (What this king really rules)

[Tch... Henry's hands tighten painfully on Ryou's arms, but he forces himself to release after a moment, breathing slowly. Even so, Ryou can likely feel that his heart started pounding at that, almost as if Henry himself was afraid.]

The Thief King Bakura... yes?
helpusduelist: (They're falling one by one around me)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
....

[Slowly, Henry closes his eyes, breathing and thinking. The pounding of his heart hasn't lessened, even despite his attempts, but he's not showing that fear outwardly anymore.]

Ryou...

[How can he even begin here? What can he say?]

...that man killed Mahad. The Dark Magician.
helpusduelist: (We're always trying harder not to die)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Henry wraps his arms around Ryou, letting his head drop into that soft hair for a moment. Just remembering is causing a slight tremble in his arms, but he forces it to still.]

I don't know what happened, but Yugi was there... and Mahad was dead. He revived, the same as Malik or Rosenkreuz, but he had died.

That man... he's dangerous. I don't know what the other you intends to do -- it sounded like he protected you, but there's no telling how long it could last.

[He lets out a soft breath, one hand falling to rest on the Ring without Henry realizing it.]
helpusduelist: (They're falling one by one around me)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
[He barely represses the urge to jump at the voice, merely lacing the other arm around Ryou both to reassure and be reassured. The hand on the Ring shifts slightly, moving more firmly on it without grabbing it.

What happened, then? And what could reassure me?]
helpusduelist: (Default)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
[That does indeed reassure Henry and he sighs softly, leaning into Ryou's hair some.

I see... that's good. I hope he got rid of it, however he had to do so.

Because Mahad... no, not going to think about that. He really doesn't want to remember any of it. Instead...

I take it you're protecting Ryou from him?]
helpusduelist: <user name=deathdesu> (Say that we're fighting)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Bakura may find it annoying, but it's an important worry Henry has. Ryou is his son, after all! And since Bakura's in his body, he has to deal with it. The other hand goes up to idly pet the soft hair, the king sighing softly.

I see... that's good to know if I ever need to stop him. If he tries anything that you yourself can't hold off, then find a way to alert me. You or Ryou... I won't let him get away with something like that again.

There's an undertone to Henry's thoughts, an almost animalistic snarl heavy with rage. He's keeping it pushed down well, but his hatred for that man is almost palpable.]

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
[The nuzzling calms him down some and he breathes slowly again. He really wants to just tell him it's enough, but...

Tell me.

Even if the weapon is gone, that didn't mean there weren't more of them. He has to be ready. For everyone's sake.]
helpusduelist: (Don't you falter this time)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 05:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Hm... yes, he does remember Yugi being different then. An "other" Yugi? Maybe it was something like the spirit... or something else entirely. He'll file that away for later on.

But none of that darkness power... and a punishment like that for killing Mahad. The darker side of Henry twists in delight at hearing about the thief's suffering, then quiets as the king pushes it away. It was cruel to do, but he feels no pity for the man. It was what he deserved, at the very least.

The gun... he hopes it was thrown into the ocean, if nothing else.

And who is this "Master" of yours?]
helpusduelist: (They're falling one by one around me)

[personal profile] helpusduelist 2013-10-14 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
[The name doesn't ring a bell, unfortunately. Hrmph.

I see. Then I'll just be thankful he lacks that power.

And that's all he'll say on that, shifting his other arm a little and snuggling into Ryou some. His heart's calmed a little, at least, resuming its usual, even beat.]


I wish that I could take you in and protect you, Ryou...
